** Delivery time depends on your country's available methods and customs requirements.

Orders with multiple items will be shipped to you as the books become available, and usual per item/per additional item charges will be applied, depending on the shipping options chosen. Full shipping charges will be assessed at the time the first shipment is made. For example, if you order three items by Standard Ground shipping in the US, with two items in stock and one available in three weeks, the two items in stock will ship immediately and you will be charged $7.25 ($4.75 for the first item, and $1.25 each for the two additional items). The expected availability of your third item will be noted on your packing slip. When the third item is available, it will be shipped at no additional charge.

We will try to accommodate special requests. Please contact our customer service representatives at cust-serv@ams.org.
